16 high-reliefs, massive, adorn the facade of the memorial of the fighting France: what do they represent? What discourses do they illustrate? What are the key elements to decipher these bronzes that adorn this High place of national memory?
Through the presentation of new archives, unveiled this year, the Mont-Valérien memorial offers you to understand the memorial project desired by General de Gaulle and inaugurated 60 years ago. The use of the artistic tool is not to be left to chance in the construction of a place of memory and in the desire to transmit a story of the Resistance. Too little known and analyzed, yet unmissable and visible, facet of the Mont-Valérien memorial, come discover in an unprecedented way the secrets of the 16 high-reliefs of fighting France.

About the location

Mémorial du Mont-Valérien
Avenue du Professeur Léon Bernard 92150 Suresnes
  • Hauts-de-Seine
  • Île-de-France
A medieval place of worship that became a military fortress during the 19th century, Mont-Valérien was the main place where resistance fighters and hostages were executed in France by the German army during the Second World War.
The multiplicity of the routes of the 1008 shot, allows us today to describe the diversity. After the war, the site was chosen to honour the memory of the dead for France from 1939 to 1945, and on June 18, 1960, General de Gaulle inaugurated the Memorial of Fighting France.
These men, assassinated because they were resisters, hostages, Jews or communists are as many reminders to our history that naturally made this site the first of the High places of national memory of the Ministry of Armies, today managed by the National Board of Veterans and Victims of War.
